Reserving a Facility, Picnic Shelter or uncovered Picnic Area.
Picnic shelters are the ideal space for small outdoor gatherings like family or company picnics. These rentals are for private, exclusive use of the shelter. While the surrounding park and amenities are available to use, you must share these spaces with the general public. Shelter rentals are for invited guests only. If you’re interested in an event for the public to attend, see the Public Events page.
Picnic shelters reservations are available year-round, seven days a week. Summer reservations fill up fast, so book as soon as you can! Reservations can be made up to 12 months in advance. Shelters are offered as-is, rain-or-shine. See the map above to see where each rentable shelter is located. Small groups under 30 people may use any park on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’d like a guaranteed spot, you must reserve a shelter through the district. Planned events with more than 30 people must reserve a picnic shelter.
The district does not provide clean up or preparation for shelter rentals and requires renters to leave the facility in good condition or pay the cost of cleaning and repairs.
